UVU’s Community & Continuing Education Department offers a variety of conferences and on-campus, online and nontraditional courses each semester, all designed to extend low-cost, convenient learning experiences to everyone — children and adults, local and nonlocal.
“Our courses are generally short-term and noncredit, and each class is designed to help community members develop new talents, build job skills, explore new hobbies and make friends,” said Diana Hunter, director of instruction for the department.
